After the day care program was closed, most of the Stepping Stones staff made the switch to the YMCA’s Early Learning Childcare program.

The childcare program was a first for the YMCA, but Executive Director Erica Miller saw the community need and worked quickly to fill in the gap. Now the early learning center has a new director and is continuing to grow the program it so quickly took on.
